We are often mistaken in thinking that we have to love God in order for God to love us. That’s not the case. God doesn’t need our love; his love for us is unconditional. But in order to get more out of God’s love, we have to give it away. The more we give, the more we have – “a delightful stream of grace” that spreads joy among us.
